Going do it all again... >:)
on 9 November 2012
I cannot recommend this kit enough for all you trekkie modellers and anybody else who likes a challenge... a challenge for me as I have NEVER done "airfix" before this !!!.
Just have a little patience, steady hand... and I well recommend the "acrylic" water based paints (as per Revell's own rec)... easy to use, easy to clean, etc...... I think I spent ~£20-£30 on paints, glue and a set of medium-good quality brushes.... and some paint is left over....
Oh..... I decided to add some internal "illuminations" to this kit..... windows, warp nacelles, deflector dish.... kinda cool when "switched on" as the deflector and warp nacelles "warm up" slowly...oh, and the bussard collectors (bits on the front of the nacelles) glow different colours!!)...REALLY NICE RESULT!!
Well..... I am going to buy a 2nd Voyager kit..... not only do I want to "improve" on the "illuminations but I also want to use my new found experience and what I learned when doing the 1st model (and also a from building a model of a Vulcan bomber... that was fun too!).... such as cleaning off the plastic burrs and rounding of the bits and bobs before painting... just to try and make it look that little bit "smoother" and realistic.... Also I might try some "spray painting".... which I think for the Voyager model will be ideal as the majority of it is "one colour"
Cant wait !!..... sorry, waffled on a bit... shame I cant post a pic for you truly sad tekkies like me, to take a peek!!!!!!!
